Introduced by Rep. Al Pscholka (R) on January 13, 2011, to prohibit government employee union members from using a government email or facilities for political activities, fundraising, campaigning, union organizing activities, etc. If members of the general public can rent or borrow a public facility, government unions would not be prohibited from doing the same under the same terms and conditions.
Referred to the House Oversight, Reform, and Ethics Committee on January 13, 2011.
Reported in the House on September 20, 2011, with the recommendation that the substitute (H-1) be adopted and that the bill then pass.

A Network Security program is the only solution to stop unions from using government emails, guess the government realized they have competitors and decided to stop it.
